Two Men Stabbed in Soccer-Related Argument Near South Lakes HS

Updated 10:35 p.m. Sunday to include suspect description from Fairfax County Police Department

Two men in their 20s were stabbed in an argument during a pickup soccer game Sunday afternoon near South Lakes High School.

Police say the two men, ages 22 and 23, who were stabbed were transported to Reston Hospital Center. The injuries to the 23-year-old were first deemed to be life-threatening, but the man’s status later improved to stable.

The suspect in the stabbing has not yet been apprehended, but Fairfax County Police spokesperson Tawny Wright said there is no threat to the community at large.

“The suspect and the two victims were somehow acquainted,” she said. “An argument erupted related to the game.”

No students from the high school were involved, Wright said.

“From what we got from the initial investigation, there were two groups of people using the field,” she said. “During one their games, an argument erupted between a small group of them. It escalated until someone pulled out a cutting instrument.”

Wright said the 23-year-old was cut in the upper body and suffered a serious injury. The 22-year-old was cut in the leg.

The suspect is described as a heavy-set, short-haired Hispanic male in his early 20s.

    So, that’s where all those police were massing this afternoon? Lots of resources committed. An argument at a soccer match? Bienvenidos a la Reston de la futura!

    • Chuck Morningwood

      Yes we should kick them all out before we lose what Reston is all about

      • KD

        Perhaps you’re that one that needs to leave. Reston doesn’t need people with that type of ignorant thinking.

        • Chuck Morningwood

          Mike agrees with me

          • Bruce Wright

            And Mike is a troll.

          • Mike M

            So Bruce, the difference between a troll and a frequent commenter is a troll disagrees with you on issues?

          • The Constitutionalist

            Well didnt you know? When you disagree with someone on the left, you become a troll. Only other libtards are allowed to disagree. And when they do, it’s always about whose fault it is that they’re…I don’t know, make something up, you’ll be right.

        • The Constitutionalist

          So you would rather have people who are ignorant enough to stab each other over soccer matches than have people who are “ignorant” enough to want to kick people out who stab people of soccer matches. Got it.

        • Why do you bother?

          you must be new here. Mike is well known for his racism.

            Mike is well-known for views not approved by your dime-a-dozen Reston [email protected] Hence the labels and name calling.

        “kicking them all out” sounds so harsh. I prefer “round them all up and inter them in tar paper shack camps in the Sonoran Desert until they beg to go home.”

        La vida en el barrio es muy buena.

        • Mike M

          You are being shadowed by a freak.

          • Sal

            Wow can’t form a better argument so you have to resort to name calling?

          • Mike M

            There is no argument with someone who uses someone else’s name to make stupid comments. Freakish is as freakish does.

          • Guest

            You add nothing with your name-calling.

  • Adolf Stupid

    Just based on what happened i would liken to see this ugly knife fight being the equivalent of NATO insisting on eastward expansion. Its a dirty trick and it was never intended to be in the spirit of the north atlantic treaty, lets hope nobody gets seriously hurt.

    1943 german tanks in Poland. 2017?

        Since you did not provide evidence i can only consider your contribution as opinion, most likely prefabricated through binge watching of the CNN Clinton News Network. No matter how this cancer spread in your brain, perhaps have it removed – you should feel better soon afterwards.

        • The Constitutionalist

          Oh boy, you haven’t been here long have you son?

  • All Soccer Fans

    Please join us for a friendly soccer match on Monday, MLK at 2:00pm EST at South Lakes High School.

    All nations invited: bring your game, favorite flag and refreshments.

    Thanks, peace and chill.

    • Mike M

      All nations? Does that include the US?

      • The Constitutionalist

        Unfortunately not.

  • RoadApples

    Curious ? : Do the anti-gunners agree that this sitation is a win/win. No guns/no deaths: just a gentleman’s disagreement .

    • The Constitutionalist

      I think we need a common sense fix to issues like this. Ban the sale of all knives immediately!

      Mark my words, two weeks from now it will be Ken Plum’s idea.

    • uhhh

      We are talking about a severe injury here, and not a killing, are we not?

      • TBex

        Yeah, we’re lucky it was a knife and not a gun. Especially considering idiots are letting guns flow into the world like water.

  • Greg

    No cameras…

  • The Constitutionalist

    You need to calm down, ma’am.

    You have literally proven all of our points. Someone calls you a name, then you say name calling is bad, and then you call them a name.

    It begs the question: Why do you bother?

    • Why do you bother?

      You have proved MY point – namecalling renders an argument invalid. You just said so.

    “namecalling renders an argument invalid.” I guess your argument is invalid.
